New Year's greetings with long-established "Kyukyodo" 's postcard
Creating New Year's cards is one of the characteristics of Shiwasu (December).The Oriental zodiac of 2020 is "Ne (rat)", you know.The first Oriental zodiac of the twelve signs of the Chinese zodiac, the first New Year when the era name became Reiwa, makes me feel special.Did you make a New Year's greeting with a beautiful postcard in the new year?"Kyukyodo", established in 1663, offers incense and Japanese paper products.There are postcards with various designs from the rat of the Oriental zodiac to the motif of New Year.Email and SNS are also good, but New Year's cards delivered in the morning of New Year's Day make me happy.I think the selection of New Year's postcards is a unique view of Shiwasu (December).Kyukyodo520 Shimo-Honnojimae-cho, Teramachi Anekoji Agaru, Nakagyo Ward, Kyoto City5 minute walk from Kyoto Shiyakusho-mae Subway Station
Have a hot pot dish in Kyoto in winter ② How about the original "Botan nabe" that looks like a big flower blooming?
You can enjoy wild game dishes such as wild boar and deer in the fall and winter when hunting is open.Why not try the "Botan nabe" that has been handed down from generation to generation at this Japanese restaurant that opened in 1918?The "Hatakaku" which has been in Nishijin for more than 100 years is my dream restaurant.The famous "Botan nabe" that was invented by the previous generation can be eaten with white miso that is typical of Kyoto.Don't you think that the arrangement of large peonies blooming is like a work of art?It is a gift from the mountain that is eaten with vegetables such as Shogoin daikon and burdock.It is a feast unique to the hunting season, and I think I can survive the cold winter in Kyoto.HatakakuKarasuma Nishi-iru, Kamigoryomae-dori Street, Kamigyo-ku Ward, Kyoto City5 minute walk from Kuramaguchi Subway Station
Have a hot pot dish in Kyoto in winter ① "Negi Shio Lemon Nabe (Salted Welsh onion Lemon Pot dish)"
Because a cold wind called "Hiei-oroshi" blows, Kyoto in Winter is chilled to the bone.If your body gets cold due to sightseeing or outing, please warm it up by eating a special pot dish.When I was walking around Kamogawa River, I found a Izakaya named "Nouka Yasai Futagoya Pontocho" like a hidden place.This restaurant serves exquisite dishes using vegetables delivered from a farm in Kyoto!Why don't you have a drink around "Negi Shio Lemon Nabe (Salted Welsh onion Lemon Pot dish)" on a cold night?The healthy hot pot that you can enjoy with a Welsh onion salt sauce on top of the Japanese dashi base is very popular with women!Refreshing flavor of lemon and spice of green onion and salt make you addicted to it.Nouka Yasai Futagoya Pontocho133 -1, Hashishita-cho, Nakagyo-ku, Kyoto 2F Emerald Kaikan3 minute walk from Keihan Sanjo Station
"Kabuki-dango" is a dumpling that I want to enjoy in Shiwasu (December) in Kyoto
In late November, a signboard "Maneki" with the names of the Kabuki actors appeared in front of the "Minamiza theatre"."THE FESTIVE KAOMISE PRODUCTION" featuring popular actors from the east and west, has also started.The mood at the end of the year in Kyoto has suddenly risen!When I think of Kabuki, I think of "Kabuki-dango (dumpling)".The color combination of brown, white and green makes this dumpling look like the curtain of Kabuki.You will be able to find it at "Fukueido" near "Minamiza theatre" and popular "Futaba Demachi" with their famous Mame-mochi.It is sold regardless of the season, but it is a dango (dumpling) that you want to enjoy along with the features of Shiwasu (December) in Kyoto.
